About the Webinar
A stable data model provides numerous advantages in developing Big Data and NoSQL systems, especially when sharing data over the cloud. Adopting an immutable model eases much of the pain of achieving consistency, especially at great scale. There can be trade-offs however that you need to be aware of.
This webinar will present details and examples of immutable data models as applied to various NoSQL systems, including MongoDB, Cloudant, Riak and Cassandra. The emphasis will be on the impact to application designers and architects, as well as the technical trade-offs and advantages. The discussion will be well-grounded in real world examples from within and beyond the enterprise.
